Blizzard has made yet another announcement regarding the upcoming 5.0.4 patch and it seems like pretty good news for a lot of players.
With the release of the new patch, they are making all races playable — no matter what version of World of Warcraft players own. This means that even those who haven’t yet purchased Mists of Pandaria will be able to play as a pandaren.
However, the ability to do so will not kick in until MoP releases on September 25.
Whether or not players will be able to roll a monk still hasn’t been specified, but at this point we are guessing they will not.
